Why Mill River is the Perfect Place for Winter Adventure

Whether you love the snow or not winter does not have to be a drag, especially in PEI! With so many beautiful sights to see and places to explore, you’ll find adventure waiting to happen all winter long. With snowy days fast approaching, what more could you want than fresh air, happy kids, and an adventure? As far as Mill River Resort is concerned, winter activities are for everyone – young, old, and everyone in between! So instead of hibernating this winter, answer the call to winter fun with a visit to Mill River along the beautiful North Cape Coastal Drive.

In a child’s eye, there is little that’s more exciting than spending a night away. With Mill River’s renovations, each and every room cozy, comfortable, and relaxing – truly a place that kids and adults alike will love! Your room will be the perfect landing space as you explore all the resort has to offer!


Grab your skates and hit the ice! The outdoor skating rink at Mill River is a great start to your winter adventure. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced skater, there’s room for you to have a blast here, and you’ll leave the ice already looking forward to the next time you can go for a glide!


We dare you to find winter adventure more exhilarating than speeding down the tubing hill. The feeling of wind blowing through your hair as you slip and slide down the hill just doesn’t get old! It’s up to you how fancy you want to get, but trust us, all the best winter days include tubing at Mill River.


Still have energy to burn? First of all, we salute you. Secondly, how could you miss a chance to snowshoe or cross-country ski on a beautiful winter’s day? With the sun gleaming and the snow shimmering, Mill River’s trails are waiting for you to continue your winter adventure. Need a little more fun? Well ok! The resort’s new additions of disc golf and fat biking will kick the winter fun up a notch.


Need to warm up inside? The resort’s newest indoor addition, the Foresight “Hawk” Golf Simulator and players lounge, will let golf enthusiasts golf all year round! Not to mention, Mill River’s Aquaplex is loaded with more fun than you’ll know what to do with! Squash courts, a pool, a jacuzzi… oh, and did we mention a 90 foot water slide? This place is no joke! When you’re thoroughly tuckered out and just need to relax, the art gallery and indoor games are a great way to get little quiet time to gear up for the next adventure!


After all that exploring, there’s no way you’re not hungry, but here’s the best part: the entire menu at Callaghan’s Restaurant and Bar at Mill River Resort is worth devouring and your mouth will water just reading it! With a wide-array of delicious choices that are fit for adults and kids alike, Callaghan’s is sure to be a huge win for everyone.


Eventually the sun will go down, but don’t think for one second that that means the fun is over. End your adventure on a high note by bundling up, heading outside to a cozy fire, and roasting marshmallows for s’mores! Just a few steps away from your room for the night, this is the one and only way to end your family’s great winter adventure at Mill River Resort.
